Welcome to #WildEye, a tool to track seizures, arrests, court cases & convictions relating to wildlife and other environmental crimes across Europe, Asia, Southern and Eastern Africa. #WildEye is a project of Oxpeckers Investigative Environmental Journalism, and serves as a resource for researchers, journalists and policy-makers.

You can choose which map to view in the middle left-hand column. This allows you to view incidents mapped globally, in Asia, Europe, Southern or Eastern Africa.

You can filter the map based on different categories of data using the drop-down menu at the top left.

Search for specific commodities, dates or countries using the search bar in the top left.

Track updates on cases by subscribing to alerts under #WildEye Asia, Europe, Southern or Eastern Africa.

Oxpeckers’ hard work uncovering environmental crimes costs time and money. A donation of as little as R20 can help keep our journalists on the case, and keep the pressure on those looking to exploit our natural resources for personal gain.
